Very simple. Go to the "Go" tab, and follow to personal-zone, profile. You can edit it from there.

It depends. Some people go into their Personal Zone on the top left of the screen and add it themselves. Others like Pirschjaeger just get really drunk. When they wake up in the morning, it magically appears http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I am confused on where to go to add a signature. I go to the Personal Zone and then to View/Edit Complete profile but then i get stuck on what to do next. In the Signature Box what do i type or put in? How do i make sure that the signature works?

You are going to need to put this in there:

{IMG}http://www.mypicture.jpg{/IMG}

Except where I used the { bracket, you need to use the [ bracket.

I had to type using the other one so the forum wouldn't recognize my brackets as attempting to link an image.

Where I put mypicture.jpg, this will be the web address of the site where your picture is stored. You need to upload it somewhere like imageshack.com, or your own personal webspace.

Here is the test forum and rules on using sigs.

Go> Personal Zone> Profile

On the right, click " View/Edit Complete Profile "

Scroll down to "Signature:" and enter your text.

Add a pic from a pic hosting site like Photobucket by putting the link for the image in between Hotlinking directly from others sites is not very cool.

A good way to have the pic or url you want in the sig to come out correctly is to use the buttons in the Post Reply window to set up the code for things like links, BOLD text and so forth, and then copy and paste it into the sig box. Here's mine, modified so you can see the code.

Photobucket does the code for you, or use the second to last button in the reply window, and paste just the image URL.

Be aware, your pic violates forum sig limits. It's too big.

I use Irfanview to resize pics and to view them. Free download, Tucows.com has it, among others.
